Chargers President Says He's Leaning Towards L.A. Move - Zach Links
"He asked the question, ‘Are you closer to leaving than staying?’ I said, ‘That would probably be an accurate statement.’ I also said I’m not going to make up my mind until after the season. … Everything is in place. I’m waiting on the city of San Diego."

10 worst performances from NFL Week 15 - Sam Monson
Stepping in to replace the injured Melvin Gordon was always going to be a tough ask, and while Farrow did have a couple of nice flashes, he committed the cardinal sin for a running back, and put the ball on the ground – twice. As both a receiver and a ball-carrier in the running game, Farrow coughed up a fumble, and ended the game with just 53 yards from scrimmage on 17 touches. By contrast, Ronnie Hillman, a perennial cast-off at running back by this point, gained 34 rushing yards on just seven carries.

Playing through another lost season wearing on Philip Rivers - Eric Williams
"I’m sure it’s frustrating for Philip to have to go in that situation and deal with that because it’s not how it should be," said San Diego safety Dwight Lowery, who referred to 2016 as a lost season for the Chargers. "Everything he’s meant to this organization and this city, it’s unfortunate that a quarterback of his caliber has to go through those things."

Given the going rate for pass-rushers like Miller, Bosa's four-year, $25 million deal (with a fifth-year option) makes him one of the most valuable properties in all of football. The Chargers will likely realize tens of millions of dollars in surplus value on Bosa's deal, but that wasn't enough for San Diego, which haggled with Bosa over offset language in the final year of his deal and refused to pay his signing bonus up front, which led the rookie to hold out for most of the preseason.

Mike McCoy says Chargers have not offered contract extension - Eric Williams
"I’m worried about playing the game this week," McCoy said. "There’s no reason to worry about (an extension) right now. We’ve got to worry about going on the road and playing Cleveland. That’s my No. 1 concern right now."
